The best new perennial flowers of 2021 - pennlive.com
Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden came up with this new hybrid that solves all three of those issues.‘Summer’s Swan Song’ earned the highest five-star rating in the Garden’s three-year trial of ironweeds, the results of which came out last year.This variety grows only three feet tall, has interlocking branches that help hold it into a compact bush shape, and tested out with no disease despite other infected ironweed varieties around it.‘Summer’s Swan Song’ blooms heavily in purple from September into October and has narrow, olive-green leaves and red-purple stems.“A diversity of butterflies, moths, and bees are attracted to the flowers,” the Chicago Botanic Garden’s evaluation noted.'Drops of Jupiter' is a good-looking version of a common edible herb.Ornamental oregano ‘Drops of Jupiter’Most people think of oregano as a cooking herb. But this winter-hardy perennial also makes a good-looking sunny trailer – especially when breeding highlights the flowers as in the new ‘Drops of Jupiter’ variety.“Although it’s related to the oregano commonly used in cooking, this herb is meant to show off in the garden, similar to the ornamental onion ‘Serendipity,’” says Karin Walters, a vice president at Michigan’s Walters Gardens, whic...

Indian River Commission OKs Flowers' $3 million request for Sheriff's Office security upgrade - TCPalm
DLE collects the data from law enforcement agencies statewide on what it calls the seven major crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft.Ginny Beagan, TCPALMINDIAN RIVER COUNTY — The Sheriff's Office will spend nearly $3 million for security upgrades, citing attacks on law enforcement headquarters and school shootings as evidence of the need for a single point of entry to its complex.The money originally had been allocated for major renovations to the Sheriff's Office complex, but that's no longer realistic as the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to impacts the county budget, Sheriff Eric Flowers told county commissioners Tuesday.More: Indian River County awarded about $27,000 in federal aid for emergency food, shelter programsHe said he wanted to “change some of the funding that was originally designated for future building plans to go toward safety and security of our complex, and begin that process this year.”Commissioners agreed unanimously to “repurpose” money for safety and security upgrades if a plan is presented to the commission with proposed spending.Commission Chairman Joe Flescher agreed with Flowers, saying the funds had been set aside for a “grand project” of agency renovations that could have topped $60 million, yet “may or may not have happened.”Talk of any project in that amount, in the wake of C...

Robert Mercer, CEO who helped win Goodyear War, dies at age 96 - Akron Beacon Journal
James Goldsmith, the billionaire multinational financier who shocked the community with his attempt to buy the company and break it up.Mercer by default became the general over a team of executives and others in what became the Goodyear War, a 10-week battle in 1986 to retain the identity and substance of not just Goodyear but in many ways also of Akron. Goodyear then was the city’s largest employer and rubber, while on the wane, still ran through Akron’s veins. The aftermath in many ways reshaped the city.Mercer, a World War II veteran who worked at Goodyear for 42 years, died on Friday. He was 96 years old.The 1986 war of substance was also a war of words, and Mercer and his lieutenants chose their words carefully and passionately in rallying and uniting people and institutions to the cause against outsider Goldsmith."He wanted to buy it, break it up and sell it off. That’s where the money was," Mercer recalled in 2011, 25 years later.As the war began, Mercer met with Goldsmith, who by then was the company’s largest shareholder with 11.5% of Goodyear shares, to size him up.Mercer referred to Goldsmith as "Goldy" and "Jimmy" and said the raider was "damn good at what he did. The guy was a perfectly charming, bright guy."The attempted takeover of Goodyear, then the nation’s 34th largest corporation, was dramatic,... Jun 19, 2020

A city's secret weapon: flowers - Kitsap Sun
They’re distracted by the towering evergreen that I can’t wrap my arms around. It rises from a carpet of Periwinkle that assaults the sidewalk with sprays of flowers. Across the walkup is a chaotic mess of silvery-blue Mediterannean herbs, with spindly limbs cocked like the arms of old-timey boxers. Pedestrians might identify the spreading strawberries, or notice the small mounds of thyme, oregano, and sage pressed between Rock Rose, lavender, rosemary, and Lamb’s Ear. The plant selection is equal parts nostalgia for a flowering, sun-drenched Old World, and the practical production of fresh berries and herbs for my kitchen. With such emphasis on Turkish flora, I was surprised one day to realize that I’ve grown a very American garden: informal, naturalistic, and pragmatic. Like all gardens, it’s a function of its gardener.We find ourselves in a strange situation where streets and sidewalks are about the only places we can go, but this time of year our humble yards put on a show that’s hard to match. They aren’t usually formal gardens containing frilly things. They’re weird and interesting. They’re full of personality and individualism. Where much of modernity seems robotic, mass-produced, and lacking in the personality and imperfections that make us beautiful, “Old” Kitsap in the spring is chaotic and expressive.So go for a walk, if possible. Stretch your legs. Get some fresh air. When I lived in Turkey, people often took to the streets in the cool of the evening to see and be seen. There’s a Turkish word I particularly love: gezinmek. It means something like “meandering for pleasure” or “strolling for entertainment and socializing.” Sometimes, a journey can be a destination in its own right, which sounds very esoteric - but sometimes we also just need to get out of the house without touching anything, so if treating our...

Evan Dahms, who runs the Sherwood Park Sandridge Stables where Morel trained out of under his wife and stable co-owner Tricia — who was in Florida to coach Morel and others from Sandridge — said it was simply devastating news.“You heard the news and you just don’t want to believe it,” he said of Morel, who worked as a bartender at the Sherwood Park Keg. “Kat was such an outgoing, friendly, charismatic person. Everybody liked her. She was the life of the party and was always helping people. She was goal-driven and was out almost every day looking after her horse. She had been with our stables for about eight years. When I talked to Tricia she was still in shock and couldn’t quite believe it either. Everybody is upset and saddened by it. The horse community is a small one and everybody is feeling this loss. She knew everybody and was one of the first people to come up to new riders and welcome them and make them feel at home.”Another Sandridge rider, Andrea Belke, also told Postmedia that Morel, known by her friends as Kat, was the most advanced rider at the barn, a “big inspiration” to others, and “a wonderful person.”“If anybody was having a hard time handling a horse, it was like, ‘Call Kat, she’ll hop on him and get him tuned in’,” she said. “We want to help our bigger community of Edmonton and area know we lost a good one. Kat and Kerry are deeply missed.”Dahm said that Kerry On’s stall at Sandridge has been filling up with flowers and messages conveying grief ever since the tragic accident.“People have been coming in and bringing flowers and leaving messages and things,” he said. “Kerry On’s stall has become a memorial.”Morel’s death was felt throughout the North American equestrian ranks.“Today, the equestrian industry lost not just an exceptional athlete, but an exceptio...
